  • I am a recent owner of an APEX, and am able to play in games with it. (MS Comfort Curve 2000, Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury)
    I have an OG PS4. It has 2 usb ports on the front and no USB ports on the back
    The APEX is using the front right port on an OG PS4.
    The PS4 is also rigged with PSVR which requires the front left USB port.
    I have 4 DS4 controllers which were bought around the time the PS4 was bought. These do not have a lightbar on the touchpad. I believe these do not support Mic over USB. (I don't have a gameplay need for a 5th controller.)
    I have a HyperX Cloud II USB headset but I have no ports to plug it into.

What is the best solution:
1) Get PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Wireless Controller with touchpad lightbar - $75+tax
2) Get AmazonBasics 4 Port USB 3.0 Hub  $23+tax - (saves ~$55)

If solution 2 is available, how would the USB hub be configured?
Method A
PS4>>PSVR
       >>AmazonHub>>XIM>>XIMHUB>>Controller&Keyboard&Mouse
                               >>HyperX Headset
OR
Method B
PS4>>PSVR
       >>XIM    >>AmazonHub>>Controller
                                              >>Keyboard
                                              >>Mouse
                                              >>HyperX Headset


Thanks
